Printed on a thick paper and bound in a quality hardback, this collection combines the feeling of a classic children's treasury with the appeal of contemporary styling.

"This gentle prayer book has an artful vibe. . . . Many are from the Bible, but traditional/anonymous verses, poems and even a Navajo night chant are also featured, giving the small-format book a broader spiritual vision (and audience)." --Publishers Weekly on Goodnight Prayers
